The western side of Curaçao stretches from Bullenbaai, near St. Willibrordus to the north west fishing village of Westpunt, the home to some of the best boat diving and shore diving with GO WEST Diving Curacao. Along this rugged and ancient coastline, you will discover some of the best beaches in the Caribbean such as Cas Abao and the famous Kenepa Plantation. These world class locations, among others, provide you with an exceptional opportunity for incredible shore diving and snorkeling. However, this is just to get your feet wet because to truly “sea” the BEST of the WEST, then you need to dive into these essential dive experiences to feel it for yourself!
Go West Diving Curacao is well recognized as one of Curacao’s premiere PADI dive operations and serves many of the accommodation options in the Westpunt area including its sister company, All West Apartments and Diving.
Curaçao unarguably offers great shore diving, but if you want to visit some of the very best dive sites the island, you’ll want to get there by boat.
Go West Diving offers daily boat trips to sites which are hard to get to or impossible to reach from shore. The most well-known of these is Mushroom Forest. This expansive area of coral flats is named for the striking mushroom shaped coral formations. This is one of the top dive sites of Curacao and one we often visit twice each week. Most life is found around the 40ft/12m to 50ft/14m mark where gigantic mountainous star coral formations are still evident and attract giant moray eels, porcupine fish, barracuda and lobster.
The most northern dive site we visit, Watamula, is only 5 minutes away by boat. It offers spectacular healthy formations of hard corals, a soft coral-garden and a large variety of marine life.
That’s why we say: GO WEST… to the BEST!!
